What is Spinnaker?
Spinnaker is a multi-cloud continuous delivery platform that provides an interface for defining immutable infrastructure, deployment automation, application updates and visibility into the end-to-end lifecycle of applications. Spinnaker helps developers to deploy to any cloud environment effortlessly by providing pull-based deployment model. Spinnaker automates application deployment via pipelines, which are assembled by the user from task pods. Tasks in a pod are executed sequentially to cause a change in the system, such as deploying an application version.
What is Java?
Java is a general-purpose, concurrent, class-based, object-oriented programming language specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It lets application developers 'write once, run anywhere' (WORA), meaning that coders can write a single application and compile it on many platforms without rewriting it. These targeted applications include enterprise software systems, applets, browser plugins, J2ME apps, and other applications that have already driven the popularity of Java technology on the server and the embedded platform.
